Recommendations handed over to Ministry
Since several years now, the periodic training for all professional drivers in Europe is mandatory. Since 2006, the Professional Driver Qualification Act (Berufskraftfahrer-Qualifikations-Gesetz) regulates the mandatory training of professional drivers in Germany. Professional drivers have to provide a proof of having participated in a 35-hour periodic training every 5 years. In practice, however, there appeared significant implementation problems from the beginning. Uniform controls, content liability, tamper-proof certificates – all not existing.
Recommendations for a revision of the legislation have now been handed over to the Parliamentary State Secretary of the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, Dorothee Bär, in the margins of the award ceremony of the young drivers’ initiative “Hallo, Zukunft” presented in Berlin.

The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) has published the latest PIN Flash Report No. 27 today. Around 240,000 car occupants were killed in road collisions in the EU in the years 2001-2012. There was a reduction of 55% from 2001 (27,700 in 2001) to 2012 (12,345 deaths in 2012). The report shows the EU member states with the highest reduction rate in killed car occupants. Finally, the report gives recommendations to member states and EU institutions how to go on with this trend. One of the key recommendations is “Improve learning and qualification systems for novice drivers” – a recommendation MOVING strongly supports, because novice drivers still remain the road user group with the highest risk of being killed or injured.
